The USC Trojans landed the #5 ranked recruiting class in the Scout.com 2017 team rankings, but how does the offensive tackle position rank compared to other 'SC classes this decade?
Overview: The Trojans landed four projected tackles according to the Scout.com experts in the 2017 class. Of the four, two are expected to shift inside to guard. Five-star Austin Jackson is the highest rated OT the Trojans have signed this decade and the fifth rated tackle in the nation for 2017.
USC OT rated too high: E.J. Price
USC OT rated too low: Chad Wheeler
USC OT notes: Of the four OT's that signed with USC, only two are in the Scout 300. E.J. Price is the only tackle signed this decade that has left the program. Chuma Edoga is the only OT on the roster who has not used his redshirt. The four highest rated OT's on the roster are all from out-of-state. The remaining nine are all from California. Chuma Edoga was a higher rated tackle (3rd) than Austin Jackson (5th) for their respective classes, but Jackson was the higher rated prospect in the Scout 300 of the two (30th vs 35th).
